Web hosting and cloud hosting customers will have strengthened access controls to files and processes, multiple Windows Server 2012 machines can now be managed as a group, Hyper-V can now work in various configurations including multi-tenant environments, enhanced security and isolation, the new Resilient File System (ReFS) gives web hosting customers better scalability and reliability, improved support for open-source standards and applications, and allows for migration of virtual machines from physical server to another without any downtime, enables network virtualization and boosts overall performance for several key metrics.
Matt McKinney, Director at Canadian Web Hosting spoke of the new improved Windows Server 2012, “The technology enhancements Microsoft has delivered with Windows Server 2012 will allow our clients to take full advantage of cloud computing. We are excited to see how Microsoft has simplified the service offering with four versions and improved the economy by offering the same enterprise-class features across the Standard and Enterprise editions. Because of this, our clients can now select a version based on their business requirements and not an arbitrary feature set that put features like high availability out of reach to many customers.”
